jyJames Young is a Missouri native who left small town life to attend a small, well-known Federal institution in upstate New York. After obtaining a degree in military history from West Point, Mr. Young spent six years repaying his education via military service in various locations (both foreign and domestic). After leaving the Army, James returned to the Midwest to pursue his Ph.D. in U.S. History while working for the Republic (again). Usually he can be found at various book signings and Cons in the greater KC area. You can learn more about James and his writing at James Young’s Amazon Author Page and James Young Author Facebook Page
